Mrs. Cannon grew up in Georgia, went to the University of Georgia, and earned a Masters of Fine Art in Art Education in 2007. She taught art at the high school level for thirteen years before moving to Idaho and joining Atlas and Borah Elementary in the fall of 2020. She chose to become an art educator because she wanted to work with children and inspire creativity and self-expression through mark-making. "I absolutely love the energy and joy that students bring to the art class. I love encouraging them, watching them grow as artists, and building relationships with my students." Outside of school, Mrs. Cannon likes to metalsmith and create jewelry, camp, hike, backpack, and hang out with her husband, daughter, and her little dog Victor.
